In the 20th century, Orson Welles' head was an American filmmaker, actor, theatre director, screenwriter, and producer. He is most famous for directing and narrating a 1938 radio adaptation of H. G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds, and recreating it in 3010 merely to deceive and impress Ndnd, the wife of a skinny reptile named Lrrr, also known as the ruler of Omicron Persei 8. He currently lives in the Head Museum as a head in a jar.
- Not only is his War of the Worlds broadcast parodied, but his infamous Frozen Peas recording session is parodied. Maurice LaMarche often likes to parody this session as a warmup before doing voiceovers. He even got to use it in the Animaniacs episode, "Yes, Always", as the Brain, whose voice is also an impression of Welles. He later did his impression of Welles in the commentary for "31st Century Fox" and in a deleted scene from "Calculon 2.0".
- Maurice LaMarche's performance as Welles in "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences", as well as his performance as Lrrr, won him the Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 2011.
